The Scrapbook Magazine

Been waiting for ages to tell you about this one... Wear Crafts sponsored the Four Ways Challenge and I am having a layout published in The Scrapbook Magazine! (eek!) I haven't seen the mag myself but I know others have started to receive theirs, so I am going to post my photos of it this week. Here is the first one:
It is very interactive so I will post more views this week. Don't forget the bargains we have in store at the moment on Mini Mount Pads HERE and on Wear Crafts Embellishment Bags HERE. And if you like the September Bundle as featured in The Scrapbook Magazine, it is available HERE. I hope you had a great Sunday, jenx

Saturday Scrapping

MacMillan themed scrapbooking using the little bits out of my World's Biggest Coffee Morning Kit. Going to pop on the photos I took at the crop.
It is bendy because I photographed it on my computer chair! Happy Saturday, Jenx

Oliver! Oliver! Never before has a boy wanted more...

Sam tells the story...

I thought the double decker bus was never going to come. I was very excited about the bus as we don't travel by bus very often.

I began to realise that we don't travel by bus very often because the bus drives through every town and village between our home and Newcastle. It was fun at first, but the novelty began to wear off and mother got agitated because I kept asking how long it was going to be before we got there and how many miles away from the theatre we were. 

There was only one place I wanted to go to for lunch - Burger King! I got a cool pictionary game in my bag.

I pretended that I didn't want to have my photograph taken outside the theatre, but I did really! I really liked the huge banners hanging down between the pillars outside the theatre. Mother started telling me all about the theatre, and its history and how many plays she has seen there and how she loves the theatre and how we should go more often but I stopped listening.

We sat in the foyer for an hour before we could take our seats. Mother wanted to go shopping in Newcastle, but I don't like shopping so I put my sad face on and she gave in. We played pictionary man while we waited.

Again, I pretended I really didn't want to do this - but I did really! I got very cross because people kept walking in front of the camera!

I love my Oliver! T shirt. I took my jumper off in the foyer and put my new T shirt on there - right in front of everybody. Mother was very shocked by this.
This was our view of the stage before the show began. I got very angry with mother for taking this photograph because the announcement specifically said that we were not allowed to take photographs in the theatre and we had to put our mobile phones away. She normally follows all the rules and I was worried we would be thrown out before the show even began. She is not normally naughty.

Our seats were brilliant! Second row of the Grand Circle - very expensive and worth every penny.

 

I recognised the actress who played Nancy from Doctor Who so I asked mother if she would take a photograph of today's cast list so I could check her previous roles. As you can see from the photograph, I was very annoyed with the lady who walked in front of the camera.
So, that was Oliver! It was brilliant, amazing, heartily recommended. I loved it. Sam loved it! We had a blast. jenx

Rocking Your World Friday

Can it really be that time again? The weeks are going by so quickly. My main Rocking thing this week hasn't happened yet but I have been looking forward to it all week so I am going to tell you about it now.
Tomorrow, DS2 and I (is that grammatically correct?) are going to Newcastle Theatre Royal to see Oliver! The Musical. We are both very excited. We have been singing Food Glorious Food and Gott Pick a Pocket or Two all week. We have watched the DVD several times and are script perfect. We are going there on a double decker bus - cause of great excitement. We are going to eat lunch out, just the two of us - another cause of great excitement. We are going to eat ice cream during the interval and sing throughout. We plan on giving a standing ovation before we have even seen it we are so confident it will be good.
So, although my rocking thing hasn't happened yet, the build up has been great so that is my rock this week! I feel like a little kid again, waiting for Santa to come! I will no doubt post excitedly about it tomorrow and I def feel a scrapbook layout coming on! Have a super weekend and I can't wait to read your Rocking Posts and I promise I will be a better commenter this week.  Off to the crop now! Wish you could all come too! jenx
